Express App More Related NewsUS Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s speech where he laid down some of the most important markers for India-US relationship was remarkable for its clarity vision and matter-of-fact bluntness that are rarely seen in the world of high diplomacy and statecraft His public address at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington on Wednesday would comfortably go down as an epochal moment in bilateral ties It was a treatise of American commitment towards India that would stretch for in Tillerson’s words at least a 100 years The expanse of time is significant It indicated that the US sees long-term potential in bilateral ties and believes that a sustained enduring and close strategic partnership between the world’s oldest and the world’s largest democracy would be a force for global good Tillerson mentioned the words ‘100 years’ three times during the course of his address —describing the modalities of the relationship the way it would pan up and eventually shape the global future The vastness and breadth of his vision may have a rare appeal for India which suffers from commitment issues from the time of Chanakya and values fiercely its strategic autonomy even under the stewardship of a prime minister who isn’t allergic to closer ties with the US However contrary to the general impression Tillerson’s address wasn’t just fulsome praise It was also a blunt assessment about the difficulties that mark the relationship including a stifling business climate in India and American reluctance in sharing cutting-edge military technologies This rare honesty prevents the speech from degenerating into a volley of encomiums and makes it an important US foreign policy document Arguments have been made that Tillerson’s precarious position in the Donald Trump administration diminishes the value of the speech and reduces it to a rhetorical goodwill This is a misreading of the situation Tillerson’s address wasn’t an extempore Twitter post but the considered expression of an institutionalised relationship that is underwritten by shared values and mutual interests It’ll be worthwhile taking a closer look at the speech and read between the lines Before getting into his theme of the evening —a free and open India-Pacific —Tillerson placed the tie within the context of closer "defence ties" coordinated "counter-terrorism efforts" "expanding energy cooperation" and clarified that "Trump administration is determined to dramatically deepen ways for the United States and India to further this partnership" The mention upfront of ‘strategic partnership’ is deliberate It institutionalises the relationship (given the fact that the two nations are not treaty allies) makes it more open to assessment and creates space for upgradation if need be in the future Healso laid out the need for US India Japan and Australia (democracies in the Indo-Pacific region) to form a ‘quad’ to take on the maritime security challenges and nudged India repeatedly to make Australia a part of New Delhi’s strategic convergence moves The reason was clear: The largest vessels from American Indian and Japanese navies demonstrated their power together in the Indian Ocean for the first time setting a clear example of the combined strength of the three Indo-Pacific democracies We hope to add others in coming years He also said that India who is the major defence partner of the US will get access to military technology to rev up its capabilities and be ready for taking on the role of a ‘supercop’ in the region While this was an indication that the US is ready to suit its action to words it also was a way of pressurising India to "do more" a constant theme in the Trump administration Tillerson’s references to Pakistan were interesting He censured Pakistan severely while also keeping open a window of opportunity for mending of ties Indian policy makers would have noted it but they would be wise not to read too much into it There is a feeling in India that Trump is falling prey to Pakistani baubles and fake promises but there is a distinction between US policy statements and Trump’s impromptu Twitter posts Tillerson’s comments suggest a more consistent approach to Pakistan policy than is being currently understood File image of US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson Reuters Tillerson then delved into the theme of his address "But another more profound transformation that’s taking place one that will have far-reaching implications for the next 100 years: The United States and India are increasingly global partners with growing strategic convergence" And thus starts the most extraordinary part of the speech where he savaged China’s One Belt One Road (OBOR) plans stated that South China Sea cannot fall prey to Chinese hegemony and suggested (albeit vaguely) an alternative model for development of Indo-Pacific region "The emerging Delhi-Washington strategic partnership stands upon a shared commitment upholding the rule of law freedom of navigation universal values and free trade Our nations are two bookends of stability – on either side of the globe – standing for greater security and prosperity for our citizens and people around the world" The US secretary of state repeatedly stressed on the nature of the bilateral ties —that it is a "strategic partnership" underwritten by many verticals —and the words stem from a US belief that India punches way below its weight in exercising influence in a fluid India-Pacific region This has been a constant theme with the Trump administration It perhaps stems from the realisation that in order to contain the rise of China the US could do with some help from India The world’s largest democracy after all is a natural counterbalance to China in almost every sphere— from political system to a more open pluralistic and heterogeneous society Tillerson’s indictment of China was severe and it came just hours after President Xi Jinping warned nations against adopting a ‘Cold War-era mentality’ The message perhaps hit home "China while rising alongside India has done so less responsibly at times undermining the international rules-based order even as countries like India operate within a framework that protects other nations’ sovereignty China’s provocative actions in the South China Sea directly challenge the international law and norms that the United States and India both stand for" It is hard to find a more direct accusation International references to South China Sea generally avoided the mention of China while dropping heavy hints about its coercive actions The clear indictment of China could be linked to the ongoing Communist Party Congress in Beijing where Xi is widely expected to consolidate further his power Though Xi pointed out again during Wednesday’s opening address that China believes in "peaceful rise" not many would be willing to buy that assurance More so when the prospect of a more powerful Xi looms at the anvil Tillerson’s statement makes it clear that the US attaches no importance to Xi’s assurance?” DU registrations will continue till June
